Worldwide, Love Your Melon Crews were able to visit over 200 hospitals, host 150 adventures and events with various nonprofit partners, deliver 10,650 beanies, and connect with a record amount of children on Superhero Day.
Last Thursday was Superhero Day at the University of Minnesota, Masonic Children’s Hospital. Love Your Melon puts on this event as a way to commemorate the tremendous courage that young kids battling cancer and other diseases go through. The goal of this event is to make every child in the hospital feel like a superhero. These children are so strong and go through some very tough treatments. Like the superheroes and characters they idolize, they face these every day battles with incredible bravery.
Children watched a live performance and joined in on a meet and greet with their favorite Marvel superheroes like as Spiderman and Black Panther. Families at the hospital did some arts and crafts, picked out beanies, and even practiced their own superhero skills.
GenerationNow was more than happy to provide the music for the local event. We had so much fun keeping spirits up for the families, children, LYM crew members, and hospital staff involved.
Here is Kasper from the GenNOW team with Emma. Emma is battling neuroblastoma with so much strength, and she was full of smiles as she enjoyed the superhero party. In this picture, she very is very politely requesting Bruno Mars before scootin’ around some more.
After the event ended a Love Your Melon team member also said:
“Hands down recommend GenNOW for any event you are hosting! I have had both Nick (DJ Mad Mardigan) and Anthony DJ for smaller events at a local children's hospital. They were able to join in the celebration for a few hours while children were able to enjoy music, crafts, pizza and take their minds off treatment. They're flexible, reliable, have the perfect set-up and understand the audience they are playing for. Tim is also great to work with when setting up events! I would 10 out of 10 recommend any GenNOW DJ for any event large or small!”
It was a pure delight to be a part of this empowering event. Thanks so much to Love Your Melon for including us and we were so glad we could be a part of it!
